Two more F+S employees certified as SQIL by Volkswagen

An essential part of the F+S philosophy is the focus on highest quality. We share this view with Volkswagen AG, which has high quality demands and places them on its suppliers to the same extent. With the help of SQIL training, Volkswagen tries to convey these quality demands to its suppliers.

Last month, Dr. Johannes Czekansky and Michael Salzer completed the training as Software Quality Improvement Leaders (SQIL) at Volkswagen and passed the qualification examination quite perfectly.

Together with the supplier, the SQIL continuously report on progress and improvements to Volkswagen's quality assurance department.

to learn g533f6a85a 1920Due to our long-standing reputation at VW and our independence, the F+S SQIL reports enjoy a high level of trust and acceptance. To maintain independence, the SQIL certification scheme stipulates that the SQIL does not actively participate in the supplier's improvements. However, our F+S consultants with SQIL training can additionally accompany our customers as coaches and thus support their projects actively and pragmatically with their SQIL perspective.

Girls'Day again at F+S

Girl's DayAfter Girls'Day could not take place at F+S in the past two years due to the Corona Pandemic, we are making a new attempt this year to host this special day at the premises of F+S.

Jobs in information and electrical engineering tend to be male dominated in Germany, especially in the automotive sector. In order to get more girls interested in automotive engineering, we are opening our doors for Girls'Day on 28.04. for 3 girls who are curious about tasks and challenges in these fields of work.

All girls with an interest in computer science and technology are welcome to participate.

We will tell something about our projects, tasks and customers and show how easy it is to create and program circuits with few materials. The participants can address all their questions in discussions with our female colleagues and will see: Technology is not just for men!

Changes in the F+S management

André Zeh, long-time managing director and shareholder of F+S GmbH, has resigned from his position as managing director for personal reasons as of 28.02.2022.

We regret this decision very much. Mr. Zeh has accompanied the development of F+S GmbH for many years: He joined the company already in 2004 and has significantly developed F+S GmbH in his role as managing director in the team since 2011.

In order to ensure stability and continuity in the company, Mr. Josef Horstkötter was appointed as interim managing director alongside Mr. Michael Salzer. He had already managed the company for 13 years until summer 2021. Thus, F+S GmbH considers itself well prepared for the now following foreseeable steps into the future.

IHK reports about F+S

The Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) naturally follows the developments of the regional companies. IHK Limburg has selected F+S to report in a special on "Company Succession" in their September issue of the IHK Wirtschafts-Magazin. F+S was listed here as an example of a successful handover of management in the context of an external succession. We are pleased that the generation change went so well and met with a positive response in the Limburg-Weilburg region.
